I do not enjoy the helplessness of the female characters.
The men are typically rich douchebags until they find the helpless virgin (again with virgins *rolling my eyes).
The said virgin changes the rich douche, or in some cases, Womanizer, to become a well-rounded, good natured family man wit ...more
Irish Thoroughbred: Travis and Adelia have an interesting start to their relationship that I don't quite agree with. Adelia is usually very quick to lash out at him, which Travis just finds funny. He also is very forward at the beginning of the book and Adelia does not return his interest, straight ...more

Nora Roberts has always gravitated toward the Emerald Isle for both characters and settings, and chose a displaced Irishwoman as the heroine of her very first novel, Irish Hearts. Adelia "Dee" Cunnane was orphaned in Ireland at a young age. Her aunt came to take care of her and help work the family farm, but after the aunt has a stroke, Dee takes on all the work herself. When the aunt finally dies, Dee must resign herself to the fact that there is no way she can ...more

"Irish Hearts" is actually 2 novels--Nora Roberts's first novel "Irish Thoroughbred" and it's sequel "Irish Rose".
The stories are about 2 cousins from Ireland who come to America a few years apart and live on adjoining Thoroughbred Racing Farms. Since horses are my "passion", that is "icing on the cake".
This was a "fast read" for me and I couldn't put it down. I highly recommend it.
Irish lass Adelia Cunnane had entered a fairy tale! Working at the world-renowned Royal Meadows stables was a dream come true. She was determined to prove her worth, especially to the stables' owner—the very opinionated and ruggedly handsome Travis Grant. Princesses weren't the only ones who could have a happily-ever-after!
Erin McKinnon had followed her cousin Adelia to America and was immediately captivated by Royal Meadows' charm.
But she was not nearl ...more

And she didn't need caffeine.
"I like caffeine," she grumbled. "I enjoy it, and that's entirely different from needing it.Entirely.I could give it up anytime I wanted, and I'd barely miss it."
Annoyed,she snagged the soft drink she'd left on a shelf and guzzled.
All right,so maybe she would miss it. But only beause she liked the taste. It wasn't like a craving or an addiction or...
She couldn't say why Brian popped into her head just then.She was certain if he'd seen her staring in a kind of horror at a soft drink bottle, he'd have been amused.It was debatable what his reaction would be if he'd realized she wasn't actually seeing the bottle, but his face.
No,that wasn't a need, either, she thought quickly. She did not need Brian Donnelly. It was attraction.Affection-a cautious kind of affection.He was a man who interested her, and whom she admired in many ways. But it wasn't as if she needed...
It had to be overreaction, she decided, and set the bottle aside as carefully as she would have a container of nitro. What she was going through was something as simple as overromanticizing an affair. That would be natural enough, she told herself, particularly sice this was her first.
She didn't want to be in love with him. She began wielding the pitchfork vigorously now, as if to sweat out a fever.She didn't choose to be in love with him. That was even more important.When her hands trembled she ignored them and worked harder still.
By the time her mother joined her, Keeley had herself under control enough to casually ask Adelia to work in the office while she exervised Sam.
Keeley Grant had never run from a problem in her life,and she wasn't about to start now.She saddled her mount,then rode off to clear her head before she dealt with the problem at hand.”
